Yes, see a psychiatrist. I wouldn't let anyone else mess around with my head except someone that supposedly knows what they are doing. I preferably Board Certified shrinks, I think I get a better quality of knowledge and care. Just me. First of all, did you have tinnitus before or after the meds. Sounds like your ringing, noisy ears started after the meds, and in that situation, I would bet it's a med issue. If not, listen to Kaismama.
You are on a lot of meds at different times. You need some help, there are a lot of SSRI's out there, generic, that might be good for you. I hate buspar of Buspirone for anxiety, it doesn't work as evidenced by your stating the only relief you get from your tinnitus is when you are asleep. It had been my experience that the higher the stress the louder my ears got, actually drowning out the TV. OMG. But I noticed as my stress levels decreased, less ringing in my ears. After 10 years of tinnitus, I am feeling laid back now, no tinnitus.
I do think you need a shrink, Board Certified, head meds are nothing to mess around with. I have been sick since I was 13, I am now 56, I think as I quit counting. I tell you this so you know I've been on almost every psych med invented. Cymbalta was great until it wasn't. I am presently on Lamictal which is a miracle drug for me, along with my trusted friend.
Just giving you information, there is help in here and out there I'm the world.

I have it too, not sure if a Psyche is the answer unless you think it will help you learn some coping techniques.
What's worse is it's so loud I can't believe no one else can hear it. So sorry, but you're not alone, I know that's not a solution, but hopefully it's a comfort.

Tried Paxil, Buspar, Zoloft. Great for anxiety but they gave me constant ringing in my ears. Is there an SSRI without tinnitus as a side effect?
